A native Texan, Charla has enjoyed a well traveled lifestyle. She grew up in the Austin/San Antonio area and was always exploring the outdoors and countryside. As a child she spent time in Leakey at her great grandparents with her brother and sister swimming in the Frio River. She had a love of reptiles…particularly Horney Toads, Frogs, Toads and Tortoises and would always be looking to find a new pet.
Charla grew up raising ponies, horses, dogs and cats. She also had pet Spanish Goats, bunnies, chicks, doves, fish and even a pet crawfish.
Charla moved to Florida in the late 1970s and loved the beach and water. She learned to scuba dive and enjoyed fishing. Charla traveled aboard a 54’ sail boat with friends for several months cruising the Florida Keys and Bahamas. She settled in Fort Lauderdale where she started working on large power yachts. She landed a job as a chef on a yacht traveling to America’s Cup Race in Rhode Island in 1983. Charla spent many years cooking aboard various yachts and traveled the Eastern Seaboard, Caribbean, Yucatan and Gulf Coast.
Charla settled in Destin, Florida with her husband and daughter in 1988. She started an Artwear company by first painting fish on tee shirts. The shirts became popular and she started a company called C C Confetti. Her new clothing line was all hand dyed and hand painted and the garments were sold all over the US and Caribbean.
In 1993 Charla and her daughter returned to Texas, to be near family, and bought a catering business. She catered to offices, brides, Realtors and many other groups of local businesses. She operated three large banquet facilities in San Antonio simultaneously for a number of years.
Currently Charla is a REALTOR® and a painter. She enjoys painting a number of subjects, especially colorful sea life. Now she has time to enjoy her interests and travel to the beautiful places that America has to offer.
